The passion for fashion and interior design started with my childhood. I spent my allowance on small décor pieces or the latest stylish clothing. The passion lead to helping friends and family space plan their homes. Also, many friends and customers wanted fashion advice with clothing choices. During high school, design was apart of the Advance Theater (Advance Placement) curriculum. Learning set design and costuming enhanced my eye for historical design trends and originality. In summary, the passion of the visual arts allowed me to freelance in the fashion and interior design sector. Working with various organizations and companies nationally. I continue to learn daily, but my experience has given me a new prospective on art.
